Pope: Christ’s Peace Is Reflected In Acts Of Love And Reconciliation

The peace that is Christ’s gift to individuals and to humanity as a whole is not some superficial sense of calm, but an active force of reconciliation that calls for cooperation and self-giving, Pope Francis said.

The peace Christ offers “comes from his cross” and is “incarnated in an infinite host of saints, who are inventive, creative and always devise new ways to love,” Pope Francis said April 15 during the livestreamed version of his weekly general audience.

Continuing his series of audience talks about the Eight Beatitudes from Matthew 5:3-12, Pope Francis said he was pleased during Easter week to have reached the seventh beatitude: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

“The peace of Christ,” he said, “is the fruit of his death and resurrection.”

What Christ promises is not simply a sense of calm, which can indicate a “domesticated conscience,” the pope said. And, in fact, “spiritual growth often occurs precisely when our tranquillity has somehow been disturbed.”

“Many times, it is the Lord himself who sows agitation in us so we would turn to him,” Pope Francis said.

……………….  Greeting Polish-speakers at the end of the audience, Pope Francis also encouraged people to participate in devotions for Divine Mercy Sunday April 19.  He quoted the diary of St. Faustina Kowalska, who said Jesus told her he wanted a feast of Divine Mercy as a “refuge and shelter for all souls.”

“With trust we pray to the merciful Jesus for the church and for all humanity, especially those who are suffering at this difficult time,” the pope said. “May the risen Christ revive in us hope and the spirit of faith.”
